Like the versatile chef’s knife
, a Nakiri knife is a champion vegetable chopper, slicer and mincer. More slender than a cleaver
, Nakiri’s rectangular blade with super-sharp straight edge easily preps everything from summer tomatoes to winter squashes. The blade of the Wusthof Classic hollow-edge Nakiri Knife
features a series of shallow indentations that keep food from sticking to it.
